Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to revise and analyze the profile prevalent in the academia that explains the cultural values and behaviors of Mexicans. The main assumption of this paper is that the complexities of the changing world and power differences have not been incorporated sufficiently into the study of cultural interactions. Most studies on Mexican culture tend to be based on fixed profiles of national cultures.
In this paper I propose a simple idea about a very complex topic: the nature of the Mexican culture related to work and the transformations that have been occurring during the last twenty years. The first part provides the theoretical framework on which this study is based. The second part provides a brief introduction to the predominant narratives in the academic discourse regarding the values and behaviors of Mexicans. Thereafter, there is an analysis of some changes that have taken place in Mexican society. The last part provides some elements that can be incorporated to understand better the complexities of Mexican cultural identity and everyday practices.

Abstract: What are the relationships between Mixtec immigrants with other Mexican immigrants, other ethnic immigrants, and U.S. Americans? Does the social stratification of Mexican society transcend boarders and reinstates itself into U.S. society? How do Mixtecs adopt or reject the “pan-ethnic” identity? In this paper, I argue that Mixtec immigrants occupy a similar social rung in the U.S. as a result of social hierarchies perpetuated transnationally by other Mexicans. The population for this study is first generation parents who emigrated from the state of Oaxaca and who continue to identify with their Mixtecan roots. I will explore their motives for immigrating, the role their indigenous ancestry has played in both the immigrating process and living in the United States, and how it has shaped their relationship with other Mexican immigrants. I will collect data through in-depth interviews with Mixtec immigrants/citizens living in eastern Washington State. I also intend to explore the impacts of the “pan-ethnic” label and how it has limited the scope of Latino variety present within American society, demonstrating how social hierarchies are transnational.

"Representation of Mexican Identities in Mexican New Cinema (2000-2008): A Semiotic Analysis" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Marriott, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-05-26 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p300810_index.html>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to analyze the representation of Mexican identities in Mexican New Cinema (MNC) after the political divide in year 2000 that coincides with both the change in government after 70 years of one party ruling the country and the beginning of a recovering, though uneven, of Mexican film production. Previous studies concerning representations and stereotyping of Mexicans in cinema have been conducted before MNC emerged. They form part of general histories of Mexican cinema written by both Mexican and foreign film historians, critics, and scholars concerned with the evolution of Mexican film genres and the representations of Mexicans from the 1890s to the 1980s. Drawing from semiotics, this analysis will identify the distinguishing traits and stereotypes of Mexican identity construction in Mexican New Cinema from 2000 to 2008. The purposive sample will include the semiotic analysis of nine films to explore representations of Mexican identities.

Abstract: Public and political realms have been paying increasing attention to the potential for environmental change to alter patterns of human migration. Unfortunately, scholars haven’t kept up, with a dearth of empirical, peer-reviewed scholarship on the topic. This article contributes important empirical evidence by examining the association between human migration patterns and environmental change,
operationalized as recent shifts in precipitation. We use an innovative combination of data by merging historical state-level rainfall information from the Mexican National Water Commission (CONAGUA), with a large data set (N=2,454,651) from the Mexico General Population and Housing Census (MGPHC) for the year 2000 (MPC 2010). A multilevel logistic regression model explores the association between state-level rainfall change and migration controlling for numerous socio-demographic and socioeconomic
factors. Importantly, we examine environmental characteristics at both origin and destination locations. Origin areas with relatively higher levels of precipitation experience significantly less outmigration, whereas a change in rainfall at the area of destination has no significant association. Further, the effect of socio-demographic factors on migration was found to be contingent on the level of
rainfall. In all, rainfall was found to have a direct as well as an indirect effect on migration whereas both effects are contingent on the climatic conditions of the area of residency prior to a move. As such, this research establishes an empirical basis for the significance of rainfall as an environmental factor shaping internal population mobility in rural Mexico. The work lays an important foundation for additional exploration of environmental "push" factors for U.S. emigration.
